Amy Winehouse biopic has to be right: Noomi

London: Actor Noomi Rapace has called Amy Winehouse an angel in her life and she would be honoured to portray on the big screen.

The 37-year-old star is reportedly attached to star in a biopic of the 'Back to Black' hitmaker – who tragically died of alcohol poisoning in 2011 at the age of just 27.
But Noomi said unless the components of the project are totally right she will not accept the role, reported The Guardian.
"If I do it, all the components needs to be right. That's not a movie I can compromise with. She's been a big part of my life; at crucial moments, she was like an angel when I wasn't in a good place."
"I have a painting in my house that's four metres long that this Swedish artist did for me. It has ravens and the lyrics of 'Back to Black'. When I left Sweden after my divorce, that was what I brought with me. So the film needs to be close my heart and done the right way. And if not, it won't be me doing it. It's too precious to gamble with," Noomi said.
The biopic about Amy is based on a script written by August Rush director Kirsten Sheridan. The proposed film is being discussed after the release of the controversial 2015 documentary 'Amy', which was directed by Asif Kapadia which angered her father Mitch Winehouse over claims he and other family members didn't do enough to help the musician overcome her addictions to booze and drugs.
